Cold and blue.

It arrived. The cold front and storm. It closed just about everything. Roads. Businesses. Schools. Bars. In New Orleans, that’s a disaster.

It closed the interstate highway system to the point that if you drove around barriers because you thought you are smarter than anyone else you could be arrested.

The state declared a disaster. We can get Federal funds for two days of ice.

And, it was cold. Very cold. Bone numbing cold.

Breaking through.

Today. Not so much. It’s cold. But, not very cold. It’s icy. But, a lot has dried up. I actually took the all-seeing dog for a pretty good walk. Unfortunately, she found the black ice. She’d slip and slide. But, most of it was around a foot long. So, she didn’t slide much. I kept trying to lead her away from it. But, she’s stubborn.

I imagine that by the end of daylight today most ice will be long gone. The cold air will last another day. We’ll get back to more normal winter weather.

Bluish shadows.

The pictures. You are seeing what I saw. I mostly brightened and sharpened them a little bit. Blue ice? Well… anything white in deep shadows shows up as blue. Especially on Sony sensors and processors. Even if you are working RAW. That’s the natural color. I could have pushed the blue back to white, but what would be the fun in that?
